Martin Turbet

Currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Geneva Observatory, I recently obtained my PhD (September 2018) at the Laboratoire de Météorologie Dynamique.

I am interested in astrophysics and planetary sciences, and especially the field of extrasolar planets. I have been involved in projects of observations and modelling of Solar System planets and exoplanets since few years.

My research topics include:

  • Modeling atmospheres of exoplanets.

  • Modeling the atmosphere(s) of ancient Earth and analogues, in particular under Snowball conditions.
  • Modeling and measuring the spectroscopic properties of planetary atmospheres.
